Though the Giants' offensive acquisitions this offseason have generated the most talk, Big Blue hasn't been stingy bolstering their defense either.
The Giants were in need of a veteran presence in their linebackers room after the departures of Devon Kennard and Jonathan Casillas, and one of GM Dave Gettleman's first moves was to trade for LB Alec Ogletree. At 26, Ogletree has five NFL seasons with the Rams under his belt, where he recently wore the headset as the defense's playcaller.
Ogletree will likely be paired with B.J. Goodson, who wore the headset for the Giants as the MIKE linebacker last season. However, Goodson could only call out plays in limited time due to injuries. This season, though, Goodson is hoping to show the Giants the potential they saw when he was drafted in the fourth round back in 2016.
